Your call history is an important part of your device and how you use it. It’s downright genius, how you don’t have to go back to your contacts list to see who you’ve been taking to. But more importantly, it keeps some numbers you haven’t had the chance to add to your contact list available albeit for a short period of time. So, accidentally deleting call history on your iPhone running iOS 11/10/9/8/7 can potentially be a nightmare situation especially when you hadn’t saved a particularly important phone number.
If this is what has happened to you, keep calm! We’re here to help. We will show you how to get your deleted call history on iPhone back, important phone numbers intact.
Begin by doing the following first
- Before we get ahead of ourselves, it may be a good idea to begin by checking your iTunes or iCloud backups. It is possible that the call history may have made it to one of the backup files. If they are there, it is only a matter of restoring the backup.
- If on the other hand, you didn’t backup your call history, we recommend that you stop using the iPhone as soon as you can. This is because any new data generated on the device could overwrite the missing call history, making it very hard to recover.
